Easy Chicken n Dumplins

Homemade, as in “made from scratch”, has never been my thing. I’ve tried and failed miserably. One thing that I have never been able to master are dumplings for Chicken and Dumplins. Mine always turn out too sticky and taste horrible. And honestly, I don’t have the time to whip up anything from scratch these days. Maybe once the kids get a little older and life calms down a bit, I’ll be able to experiment more in the kitchen. But for at least the next 5 or so years, I am going to be taking the easy way out… a lot.

Luckily, I have found that Pillsbury refrigerated biscuits can actually be used for a lot more than just biscuits. I have even made donut holes out of them before.

I couldn’t decide whether to call this recipe “Easy” or “Lazy” Homemade Chicken & Dumplins. I think the word “Lazy” is a little harsh. I mean, I could be SUPER lazy and just ordered some delicious Chicken & Dumplins from Cracker Barrel. So, if you’re looking for a quick and easy recipe for homemade chicken and dumplings, here you go:

Ingredients:

  • Rotisserie Chicken, chopped
  • Pillsbury Biscuits (8 ct)
  • Chicken Broth, Low-Sodium (5 cups)
  • Frozen Peas or Carrots or Both (1 cup)
  • Cream of Chicken Soup (1 can)
  • Cream of Celery Soup (1 can)
  • Parsley Flakes (1-2 Tablespoons)
  • Small Onion, chopped
  • Butter (1 Tablespoon)

Directions:

  1. Melt butter in large pot. Add chopped onion and cook until iridescent.
  2. Add chicken brother and both cans of soup. Mix until well blended.
  3. Simmer on low for about 20 minutes.
  4. Add chunks of rotisserie chicken meat. Stir. Add peas or carrots. Stir. Simmer for about 20 minutes.
  5. Break chunks of biscuits into about the size of a quarter and roll. Drop them in pot. Allow to cook on low-medium until dumplings are cooked thoroughly.
